Isn’t this the softest squishiest comfiest looking child’s jumper/sweater – I thought so when I started to knit towards the end of last year.
I even mentioned it in a post I wrote last November for one of Ginny’s Yarn Along memes.
Well, I’m beginning to think that might have been the last time I actually handled it.
Until I ‘discovered’ it a few weeks ago – and it really was a discovery because it was bundled up with some other ‘ideas’ put to one side to be worked on during the winter.
Never one to be beaten I did a few rows now and again over the winter months. I can truthfully tell you it turned out to be not quite as an endearing a knit as I thought it would be. The four row pattern was ‘stuffed up’ more times than I’d like to remember and as for that cowl/shawl neckline – best not repeat some of the words that came out of my mouth. Let’s just say I won’t be knitting this again anytime soon!!
So that’s another one in the box ready for next years cold season.
And for a little bit of fun I’ll show you there’s still a bit of life and devilment left in the old cat named Kiera and here’s what I have to contend with.
The other day when I was sewing up the cable one I brought this one out to record (yes I’m weird like that. I often take photos so I can see how I’ve adapted patterns/designs). There were other half knit projects in the bag so the table was a little crowded – then my brown shadow arrived. Annoyed at being ignored that brown paw kept creeping closer and closer only to retreat when I growled at her.
